    Guys help me!
    I dont know whats happened. Till 11 March I received 170-200 visitors from Google. But from 12 March my Google traffic fall down. After that I recived only 30-60 visitors. Now I can`t find my site in SERP for my keyword phrase where I had TOP before 11 March.
    All my pages still in index and my PR3 is unchanged. I dont use black hat for this site. Why Google no more loving my site?

    Anybody have idea whats happened and what I should doing?

    It depends on methods you used to rank high in Google.

    I have experience the same before
    Its possible that when google came crawling onto your site for an update or whatever, it found something it didnt liked or your site is down, thus making you delisted in SERP

    This is just the name of the game. Google is a fickle beast. She can be tender and lovely or eat you alive.

    In all seriousness though, G is constantly refining and reworking their indexing algorithms. Dropping from SERPs doesn't necessarily mean you've done something wrong, it just means that Google's "perspective" of your site shifted. Give it some time too. Sometimes these things iron themselves out quickly.

    if you want some honest answers here give us more information, if i were to guess you spammed your link with that anchor text too often which has screwed you right up and effectively google bombed yourself

    I think so but it had been going on month without good news for me. How long it will be?

    What kind of information do you want? I don`t like post url for public but I can PM to you or anybody who want to help or have any ideas for me.

    About site... it`s 1 year old white project with daily manual update. The PR3 I recived over 6 month ago without any black or grey hat methods.

    No one can really tell how long it'll be and if it'll ever be the same again. As long as you keep putting in work and the content is good, there is good chance it'll rise again.

    Don't worry Pacoraban, it sounds like you are just in the "sandbox". This usually happens after the "honeymoon" where google ranks you higher than most. There may be no reason at all for your site to be ranked lower, but don't OVEROPTIMIZE like someone has already said. Instead, keep just keep adding unique content and backlinks with diversified anchor text and one day (maybe 4-6 months) you will rise back to your well deserved position! just curious, are you using a relatively new domain?

    I had the exact same thing happen to me around the exact same date. My site is white hat. It's a relatively new domain (since Oct). I figure I've been sandboxed. I'm just bidding my time, SEOing, adding content, and throwing money at adwords for now. I'm sure things will turn around in a few months.

    Best adice l can give you that normally brings the website back is to write a bunch of articles and get yourself a load of quality links.

    "Sandbox".... I thinkin its happened with new(just reg and indexed) sites in few first months. My site was reg more then 1 year (1 year 2 months) and was indexed over 11 months ago.

    Use the google webmaster tool to check on the search terms your site is showing up for. It might give you some clue ..
